...or even for an earlier version?
I'm planning to do that so that my slow internet connection will only need to download any updates once. I've already bought the base installation disk and the 12.2 repository DVDs to avoid the massive download volume -- and the insane download time. (The repository discs take about 20GB when copied to disk and I'm really
glad I didn't try and download them.) The plan is for other systems on the LAN to use the hard disk copies of the CDs as well as the planned local update repository to save bandwidth.
I will likely not
be installing everything
in 12.2 so won't need to have room for updates for the whole set of packages. (If memory serves, the largest set of software I've selected so far used about 6GB of space during the initial installation. Or was that 6GB of compressed installation files?
) I've never seen any documentation that details how one plans for such a repository. Distribution size X 2? X 3? There's no information I've run across on the OpenSUSE site about what I can expect for disk space needs for update files. (If it's there it's well hidden.)
Has anyone done this and can give me an idea of how much disk space I'd need to allocate for an update repository? Any other tips are welcome as well.
